Tubby puppet and group of musical instruments puppets from Tubby the Tuba. (Paramount, 1947) A rare Tubby the Tuba puppet constructed of painted wood with detachable feet and rear tubing. This puppet lacks any facial element, probably for one of the scenes Tubby walks away from the camera. Measures 4 in. tall. Also includes a bullfrog puppet body on wooden base, three extra legs, miscellaneous eyes and 17 heads for different mouth positions and facial expressions. In addition, a group of orchestra instruments visible during the opening scene of the film, including: marimba, timpani, cymbal, violins, violas, celli and basses. Some of the violas retain the integral stands and wire piece for posing the bows over the strings. Instrument condition ranges from very good to poor. Well over 50 pieces in this lot. A wonderful group of puppets from this endearing film.
